Are you a new librarian, paralegal, or researcher? Do you want to brush up on your legal research skills? Join us for the LLSDC Legal Research Institutes, two full-day workshops designed to introduce the concepts of legal research and prepare participants to perform research using legal resources. The workshops are designed and taught by experienced librarians from local law schools, law firms, and the Library of Congress. The LRI is open to anyone and would be especially beneficial to those who are new to legal research or are information professionals looking to sharpen their legal research skills.
